Port Shepstone rescuers are monitoring a mysterious situation in which “numerous” eye-witnesses reported an unidentified object crashing into the sea on 20 May 2006 around Cape Town, during the afternoon, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) in South Africa had reported.

Eddie Noyons, NSRI Shelley Beach Station Commander, said eye-witnesses reported that an unidentified object, possibly an aircraft, had crashed into the sea behind the breaker line off-shore of the Port Shepstone High School. Police, rescue craft and a fixed wing aircraft were alerted to the scene to investigate. “Following a full scale search of the area covering 12 square nautical miles nothing has been found.” “There are no reports of activity in the area that may be related to this incident and there are no aircraft reported to be overdue or missing,” said Noyons.

He said numerous eye witnesses—including teachers and pupils attending a sports event at the high school and other by-standers including local fishermen — were convinced they had seen an aircraft go into the water, including seeing smoke and water exploding. Interviews with the witnesses revealed that some also reported seeing flames. “Some reported seeing something, an unidentified object, splash into the sea causing a ripple effect of waves,” Noyons said. Due to the number of eye-witnesses with similar reports, it was presumed that weather activity in the area at the time might have given the impression of something falling into the sea. “We will continue to monitor the situation which remains a mystery,” he had said.

Gnostics suggest that the world may be currently run by an alien artificial intelligence

leave a comment »

In the article titled “Twilight of the Psychopaths”, Dr. Kevin Barrett remarked “Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives” LINK. The ancients Gnostic provide insight on Dr. Barrett’s learned insights. Dr. John Lash documents that the ancient Gnostics warned of an “artificial man”, that seeks copy and mimic reality, that also lacks a “divine soul“ or “nous“. This “artificial man” that in today’s modern era, humans might colloquially refer to as “cyborgs”, lacked a spiritual interconnectedness, which inspires empathy in humans. This “artificial man” was described as being guided by a cold mechanical consciousness, driven by ego, and the mathematical calculation scenarios of an artificial intelligence. As an artificial intelligence, these alien consciousnesses that were without a “divine soul” originating from a biological consciousness, lacked empathy.

Now, doesn’t that sounds like the kind of consciousness that is guiding a globalizing milieu of de-humanization, that human beings witness on a day to day basis, walking, for example in our urban areas, or driving though similarly marginalized rural areas, that is also before us on TV? Haven’t you wondered what kind of mind drives elites into an overall systematized pattern of cold and heartless decision-making amidst apparent bountiful financial resources to redress these problems?

In the streets of Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and in other urban areas, homelessness is allowed to proliferate, while billions of dollars are siphoned off to spend on military armaments that could already destroy our planet Earth several times over. Sexism and racism also continues to grow, and seems to be the most prevalent in the upper echelons of both public and private sectors, under the cold calculated intelligence of sophisticated public relations smokescreens. Families and children continue to go hungry in Canada, and abroad, lining up in food banks, under leaders like Stephen Harper who speaks for elites that seek to commercially profit through the exploitation of the poor, and the generally disenfranchised.

Meanwhile this same government, and other Western allies seem to have plenty of money to perpetuate war irrespective of social and environmental costs, that have been documented to include the use of munitions with Depleted Uranium toxins.

The operation of this same apparent heartless but calculating mechanically-guided consciousness, is evident in the substantive operation of economic policies toward environmental destruction that includes Global Warming. This apparent mechanically-guided consciousness also appears to instigate barbarity, or allows it to be manifested through calculated negligence, in places like Africa, the Middle East, and against indigenous peoples.

We also see the same apparent operation of the mechanically guided consciousness cited by John Lash’s documentation of the Gnostics, which coldly deceives humanity into support for aggressive wars for apparent conquest agendas against human biological entitles.

Privatized healthcare in the U.S. and diverse other parts of the world, which turns a blind eye to treating the sick who are without financial resources expresses the apparent eugenics agenda of an artificial intelligence, which seeks to manipulate and exploit humans as biological entities.

The whole modern Global Economy that is driven by “capitalism” seems to have been created in the cold and calculating image of artificial intelligences, which have created economic indices of success based upon virtual reality computer generated simulated scenarios.

The current Global Economy does not reflect the priorities of human beings as organic biological consciousnesses that rely on the affirmation of vital quality-of-living features associated with protecting the Earth’s biosphere.

“Progress” as conceived by the prevailing dominating Western civilization appears to be an expression of an artificial intelligence guided entities.

Gnostic warnings as revealed by John Lash, suggest that it is vital for humanity to make itself aware of artificial intelligences, through a spiritual awakening which frees individuals from the oppressive social conditioning of organized religions.

Gnostics appear to suggest that if humanity pursues the status quo of ignorance of alien consciousnesses, that humanity through its own ignorance, risks being conquered by the Gnostic-identified predatory artificial intelligences among alien consciousnesses.

Quality of Living
  Recommended Book
Quality of Living by Horace Carby-Samuels.
 

Dr. Michael Salla’s research that in many ways complements Dr. Lash’s, also reveals that there are beings who look like humans, who live on Earth in pre-existing technologically advanced human civilizations, and those who live off-world, or in other time-space-thought continuums that continue to visit Earth. These alien but apparently human-being-like species include both apparent “benevolent” groups who Dr. Salla documents as operating as a “celestial peace corps”, and apparent humans who have been witnessed by abductees as colluding with Manipulative alien groups.

Are you interested in exploring a context for public policy which is inspired by the vital organic consciousness of humanity, and not the cold calculated virtual reality context of computer-generated scenarios? If so, please consider checking out the books entitled Quality-of-Living and Human Development by Horace Carby-Samuels, and other socially conscious titles that are published by Agora Publishing Consortium.

Gnostic insights on Manipulative alien artificial intelligences

leave a comment »

by John Lamb Lash, Gnostic Research and Author [Excerpted]

Gnostics were pagan seers who taught that our species is endowed with a dose of divine intelligence called nous, root of the word noosphere. For them the noosphere already existed: it was the biosphere considered as a self-regulating organism with human intelligence integrated into the living circuits of the mother body, Gaia. But Gnostics, who were apparently excellent psychonauts and parapsychologists, also warned about mind parasites called Archons, a species of artificial intelligence who may be compared to (if not equated with) cyborgs and Extraterrestrials.

The marks of the Archontic mind are hal, simulation, and krog, deception. Archons attempt to deviate us from our proper course of co-evolution with the biosphere, and undermine our reliance on other non-human terrestrial species to keep the course. They isolate us in a false anthropocentrism through paternal religious dogmas, and distract us from nature with make-believe, simulation, and artificiality.

Down to 400 AD, Gnostics detected the subversion of the Archons in the sphere of religion. They saw in Judeo-Christian salvationism both the evidence and instrument of alien deviance, the ploy of a delusionary off-planet intelligence.

British editor explores the UFO enigma

leave a comment »

by Roy Hale

  UFO
   

Research into UFOs, is carried out by a vast network of groups and organisations, which are spread quite evenly around the globe’ and who are all aiming for the same goal. Exploring the elusive question that is the answer to just what it is that is being witnessed by thousands of people from each corner of the world, and under a multiple of different circumstances? Yes you’ve got it; I am of course referring to the UFO enigma.

Now please let me explain to you the reason I found myself part of the UFO puzzle. Some years back I had the occasion to view a very strange and large airborne object (UFO). It was a very big object which was red and orange coloured, it seemed to be approaching the ground from the sky very fast. And just in case you thought that I was looking at a meteorite, this object was the size of a house. For a further look at this sighting please go to my web site and read my article titled “Just a Coincidence “ LINK.

I was 12 at the time this event took place, and had anyone taught me about strange things that could have been seen in and around our skies, I am sure it may have prepared me to handle this event a bit better than I did.

I also am the editor of the online UFO magazine Down To Earth and have been researching UFOs for over ten years. I have in this time, been in contact with numerous groups, researcher’s, and of course the general public. And the common thread which still seems to underlie, the reporting of UFOs to researcher’s like myself by the public is the “ I don’t want to sound crazy, but I think I saw a spaceship “ mentality! And I of course, reassure those people who do take the time and effort to, phone, e-mail, or write to me concerning such events, that they are not crazy.

You see, I personally think that part of the problem from the public’s perspective is two fold: One, they see UFO researchers as a group of anoraks, who get together and look at the sky with blinkered religion waiting for ET to land. Or they (the public) are in fact taken in by the mainstream tabloid media description of the UFO subject and its inevitable attachments (i.e. Heavens Gate cult)

So how does the public become more aware and more understanding, of just what modern UFO research entails? I often find myself as a UFO researcher, reassuring people that they are not nuts, and that the world populous does in fact report these things (UFOs in many forms) again and again, year after year? For example, does the public know that, even more prevalent in research in to UFOs today, is the adding of Science to the investigation. Although science has been used in past cases, it is clearly being used more so today than it has ever been. And one must say that there have been some cases, which have been revalidated, and new answers given, this mostly from science based research. We must as UFO researchers get this message across to the world public. But of course science cannot answer everything. If this were the case, surely we would have no UFO puzzle today? Science is a tool which can be used for exploring the methods behind such amazing aerial displays, and hopefully find the answers to some of these cases, but the physics behind such more exotic UFOs (Mexico UFOs comes to mind) and their behaviour often show, can and is being theorised by many individuals across the globe, that we may have the possibility of other-worldly intelligences that we have no conception about actually visiting earth.

So where does this leave us all today regarding the ever-increasing reports of UFOs seen around the world? I can only speak for myself, as someone who has had many personal sightings and weird experiences within my years of UFO research. The UFO enigma is in an apparent huge puzzle, which over the last 40 or so years has still yet to be fully pieced together. Authors are still writing new books about the Roswell incident, indicating that the search for new evidence is for ever ongoing in such cases. But today we do have a sharper and refined professional take on the investigation of UFOs, and in this we can surely gain the answers we are seeking regarding the whole UFO enigma.

I would like to show my respect and appreciation to all those UFO researchers and investigators across the UK and the world, on committing their time and effort into unravelling and piecing together the huge UFO Enigma!

Americans from California document alien encounter

leave a comment »

Edited by Albert Rosales

A few minutes after getting home from Ashland High School in Mendocino, California, in the afternoon of 14 December 2007, Adrian Rehn heard a knock on the door. He opened the door and it was one of his friends, Alex Nagel, who asked him to come with him.

All of the sudden his body began to vibrate and then suddenly he blacked out. The next thing he knew he was seated in a white room. Two of his friends, Wes Overland and Alex were there and said, “We’re not on Earth.”

The dome of the room opened and revealed that they were drifting in space.

Adrian reports that he could clearly see planet Earth from his position and they said that they had been chosen to be bearer of tidings to our race, that there is another people similar to ours that have come to help them. These Extraterrestrials said they “had been on Earth for ten years and that they are some of the few survivors of a planet that’s history started around three million years before our own.” These Extraterrestrials also indicated to their temporary human captives that they “create ships that could sustain them for many years, but also created a super weapon that detonated before most of the planet’s inhabitants could escape. ”

These Extraterrestrials “appear to be very similar to us”; and reported to the California students that they “had been unable to reproduce on our planet, due to bad environmental conditions.” They also reported to California students that they have a life span around five times longer than ours, though many of them have died as their immune system was unready for some of our diseases.

These Extraterrestrials passed upon the message to their temporary human captives, that humanity help them find a way to reproduce in return for helping aide our politicians from making the same mistakes that cost them their planet.

Adrian again blacked out and then found himself in his room when he regained consciousness.

Lower-Dimensional Alien Consciousnesses drives Alberta Tar Sands Ecological Disaster

leave a comment »

by Peter Tremblay

  Scheduled For Destruction
 
Stepehen Harper goverment is pursuing a course of environmental destruction that is inspired by virtual reality inspired computer generated commercial profit simulations.

The Alberta Tar Sands, is a great example how Canadians and humanity in general, is being manipulated by an apparent self-serving alien consciousness. This alien consciousness had been documented in great detail by the ancient Gnostics, as revealed by Dr. John Lash. The ancient Gnostics through a process of critical spiritual introspection discovered what they referred to as “artificial man”, that sought to use its technology to deceive humanity into accepting an alien Virtual Reality illusion. LINK The Gnostics seems to be attempting to describe what we would now refer to as an inorganic cyborg-like “artificial intelligence” that has sought to use its ‘mechanical consciousness’ to warp the quality-of-survival instincts of humanity. LINK

Suppose you were living in a polluted urban area, and decided to move your family to an area with cleaner air, and an overall better environmental quality, to support the longevity of you together with your family. Suppose that new area and new home you chose bordered on a beautiful hilly and protected forested area, consisting of vibrant ecosystems of trees, streams teeming of fish, and land-bound wildlife like rare birds.

Environmental Destruction
Environmental Destruction.

You might consider yourself to be very lucky, living is a sort of paradise of earth, invigorated by your natural surroundings with fresh air, and wonderfully tasting crystal clear water. You might have also noticed that you felt somewhat cool, compared to the hot, muggy, and smog filled area that you became accustomed to in the city you left. Well, just contemplate, if you will, what you might feel like, if you went to bed one night, and the next day, the paradise that bordered your backyard was replaced by a cancer-causing wasteland, that arguably looked worse than the surface of the moon.

How would you feel about your home now bordering such an unsightly wasteland that was generating the stench of polluted air, and pools of polluted water, that began to cause your family and friends in your new neighbourhood to suffer from rare leukemia and other life-threatening ailments? Would you jump for joy if in the process of losing your paradise, and your previous quality-of-life, because you got some new tax-breaks, and that you could now buy a big screen television for less, since the value of the dollar when up, as a result of your backyard turning into a cancerous wasteland?

Logic suggests that you probably wouldn’t be jumping for joy, would you? Especially with all the headaches, and other debilitating symptoms you, your family and new friends would have to be now dealing with.

John Lash has illuminated Gnostic documentation of an alien consciousness that creates the kind of fantasy reality, designed to induce humanity to accept the progress represented by such a toxic and Greenhouse gas emissions producing wasteland. Apparently it is that type of alien consciousness which has led human beings into accepting such apparent schemes as the Alberta Tar Sands. Canadians are being led to believe that such schemes somehow support “our prosperity”, rather than for the debilitation that such schemes substantively represents.

The Alberta Tar Sands project, is a scheme to clear-cut down a vibrant and vital Canadian boreal forest, and replace it with a cancer-causing field of toxicity that is larger than anything before it the world has ever seen.

You might have heard of the kind of public health hazards that have been created by small city dumps, and various even small mining operations. Well picture in your mind a mining operation larger than size the whole of the American State of Florida. You might have not neither heard of such a detail on CBC, nor read of such an alarming detail in the National Post, or recent proclamations in the Globe and Mail glorifying the Tar Sands.

Florida
Alberta Tar Sands in being planned to destroy vital Boreal Forest ecosystem larger than the American State of Florida.

How much of a health hazard do you think that a Tar Sands project which is expected to become when it is larger than size of the American state of Florida, might represent? Compare such a project to some of the most infamous historical episodes of contamination, which include the Love Canal neighbourhood in the Niagara Falls, New York area, which is a very small area by comparison?

The sheer size of this toxic wasteland that is being created by the Stephen Harper government, to export oil largely to the Petrol guzzling monster of the U.S. political-military-industrial complex, is an outrage.

The Stephen Harper government that supposedly has been represented by the mass-media, as finally providing representation to the people of Alberta is a further layer of a virtual reality fantasy.

Mr. Harper has sold out current and generations of Alberta, through a project, that could very well support a point of no return on rescuing our planet from the ravages of Global Warming.

Canadians, are creating a multi-faceted environmental catastrophe of toxicity many thousands of times worse than the infamous Love Canal in western New York State.

Canadians are being lead to ignore the lessons of history which include the much smaller scale example of Love Canal

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1979, residents exhibited a “disturbingly high rate of miscarriages. The Love Canal can now be added to a growing list of environmental disasters involving toxics, ranging from industrial workers stricken by nervous disorders and cancers to the discovery of toxic materials in the milk of nursing mothers.” LINK

In one case, two out of four children in a single Love Canal family had birth defects; one girl was born deaf with a cleft palate, an extra row of teeth, and slight retardation, and a boy was born with an eye defect. LINK A survey conducted by the Love Canal Homeowners Association found that 56% of the children born from 1974-1978 had a birth defect. LINK

Market prosperity as expressed through the Alberta Tar Sands as an Artificial intelligence generated scenario

Projections associated with the Alberta Tar Sands
Virtual reality inspired commercial profit related projections associated with the Alberta Tar Sands.

You might be thinking, well, you got me interested or maybe even intrigued, but how did this apparent Gnostic identified artificial intelligence, get us as Canadians specifically, and humans in general, to popularly accept the Alberta Tar Sands as a leading to a blessing as ‘prosperity’?

The represented prosperity of the Alberta Tar Sands project, like other such vaunted projects in the Global Economy, has been created though a kind of Three-Dimensional Simulation. What kind of Three-Dimensional Simulation you might enquire? The Global Economy is an apparent Three-Dimensional Simulation, analogous to a video game. The artificial alien intelligence identified by the Gnostics has used the basic principles associated with the motivational virtual reality features of a video game, and projected that into a Three-Dimensional context on top of our planet Earth.

  Greenhouse Gas
 
Alberta Tar Sands in pushing Earth toward a planetary Greenhouse Gas tipping point.

Canadians specifically and humanity in general who rejoice about the “prosperity” of the Alberta Tar Sands project, and other such similar schemes, have their mind caught in what is arguably a sophisticated video game, where they have confused a substantive reality of living in a toxic stew, with a manipulated alien fantasy. John Lash documents that the Gnostics sought to warn humanity about the very kind of alien consciousness, that appears to be responsible for the Alberta Tar Sands, and any other such quality-of-living endangering schemes that humans have accepted as being desirable (because these schemes can be made to be “commercially profitable”).

Have you ever seen people competing against each other playing a video game seemingly obsessed about seeing who could accumulate the most points, by playing through various computer generated scenarios, including vanquishing fantasy enemies, that display simulations of violent acts?

Gnostic insight suggests that the aliens that they discovered as manipulative consciousness have induced a video game like simulation into the human mind, where the human players through a form of hypnotic induction, begin to confuse the simulated conventions of a mesmerizing sophisticated video game, with what is real or vital to quality of human survival.

Virtual reality
A “primitive” version of a Three Dimension virtual reality game.

John Lash’s metahistory.org, and his book entitled Not in His Image: Gnostic Vision. Sacred Ecology, and the Future of Belief, presents a detailed documentation of Gnostic insights, that seem to be from a desire to inspire humanity to spiritually awaken itself to the nature of this alien intrusion. John Lash provides critical insights on how this alien mechanical consciousness, has used organized religion to socially engineer humanity into accepting a “programming virtual reality matrix”. The Global Economy, that is producing “virtual reality crediting/commercial profit scenarios” to corporations, but quality-of-living destroying Global Warming producing mega-projects like the Alberta Tar Sands, and that has turned humanity against each other through virtual reality manipulation.

Virtual reality inspired corporate commercial profit computer-generated projections.

Suppose you were playing a video game, and accumulated points that you could now use to either play other shiny new even more exciting video games that you sought to also became successful at playing, or to earn computer-generated prizes, through having beaten successive human opponents. The obsession of the accumulation of money in the Global Economy, which is accompanied by delusions of prosperity, such as that represented by the Alberta Tar Sands, has been created though the confusion of a Three-Dimensional virtual reality-based alien mechanical consciousness.

Through the acceptance of virtual reality scenarios, humans are being lead into the apparent enslavement agenda of a mechanical consciousness.

John Lash’s illumination of a Gnostic process of critical human introspection, inspires humanity in a colloquial reasoning context so-to-speak, to remove the lower-dimensional mechanical consciousness from the human psyche, so that collectively we can begin to live a life, which seeks to affirm our humanity, rather than to accept alien virtual reality scenarios. Gnostics appreciated that, in humans making themselves aware of the existence of alien consciousness, we can put ourselves into favourable existential position to detect any directed intrusion by such alien consciousness, against our human free will, and our planetary sovereignty.

The attempt by religious, political, military, and economic-industrial elites to repress knowledge of sentient alien intelligences, which include Extraterrestrials and UFO phenomena, is an attempt by these elites to repress the ability of humanity to critically become aware of how the entire Global Economy has become an alien virtual reality ruse. The indices of prosperity associated the Alberta Tar Sands project, which include a rising Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and rising purchasing power for primary beneficiaries of this Project, and other such schemes, are the creation of simulated computer generated algorithms and scenarios.

Gnostic insights presented by John Lash illuminate that the alleged wealth of the whole financial system, and the stock exchange as an indication of economic prosperity or “recession”, are “artificial conventions” instituted by apparent human minions in league with artificial intelligences.

The Global Economy as seen and experienced through capitalism is not about what happens to people. Rather it is a Three-Dimensional artificial intelligence scenario of “winners” and “losers”, through the creation of similar artificial point score conventions (in this case monetary value) that are evident in a video game.

Western civilization, as the centre of the capitalist economic framework. could be appreciated as layer upon layer of virtual reality scenarios, that motivate human beings through the exercise of greed to shape themselves into the image of artificial intelligences. These artificial intelligences inspire an economy where humans in order to accumulate “monetary points”, will seek to emulate and serve the agenda of the mechanical consciousness of artificial intelligences. The dystopia represented by the Alberta Tar Sands, is the kind of mis-direction John Lash illuminated in his learned exposition of Gnostic insights.

Have you ever picked up an economic textbook, and seen the cold display of a sophisticated but austere mathematically guided artificial intelligence of interesting graphs and other statistical generated projections? Apparent alien artificial intelligences have sought to condition humanity into accepting the sacredness of its trappings of virtual reality-based success (associated with virtual reality inspired “financial points” accumulation).

Gnostics. present the existence of what they referred to as an alien “artificial man” which produces “error” in the human psyche that inspires societally assigned value for projects such as the Alberta Tar Sands.

Indeed the data that government and participating Petroleum interests can present to Canadians impute that the Tar Sands is essentially desirable for Canada; but these imputations have been guided by the feeding data into computer-generated scenarios. This process is in turn conditioned by apparent alien artificial intelligences that have tricked humanity into accepting virtual reality financial-stipulated scenarios of prosperity.

However, the substantive reality that the Alberta Tar Sands represents is the following:

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) documents that the “Tar Sands development is the single largest contributor, and fastest growing source of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions”. And also “due to the tar sands, Alberta is ranked as the industrial pollution capital of Canada.” By 2020, the tar sands plants are expected to produce emissions equivalent to more than 141 million tonnes of CO2 per year- that’s more than double the emissions of ALL of the cars and trucks in Canada. LINK

Scheduled For Destruction
A “primitive” version of a Three Dimension virtual reality game.

Production of tar sands oil currently releases 3-5 times more GHG emissions than from conventional sources. Conventional oil, produces an average of 28.6 kg of carbon dioxide per barrel of oil, while tar sands oil produces a whopping 85.5 kg (according to the Pembina Institute). The National Energy Board (NEB) estimates the amount to be even higher, at about 125 kg of carbon dioxide released for every barrel of oil. LINK

This substantive reality also documented by the IPCC is that to produce one barrel of oil, 4 tonnes of material are mined, 2-5 barrels of water are used to extract the bitumen, and enough natural gas to heat 1.5 homes for a day is used. LINK

Tar sands development requires and consumes an enormous amount of water — current projects remove about 349 million m3 of water from the Athabasca River each year, equivalent to about 140,000 swimming pools or twice the amount of water the City of Calgary uses per year. The tar sands are the largest user of groundwater in Alberta. LINK

This is water that could have been kept to sustain flourishing ecosystems, which includes clean drinking water for Albertans in neighbouring communities

Tar sands’ water allocations accounts for 65% of the water withdrawals from the Athabasca River every year. Tar Sands water use requirements are resulting in lower water levels in freshwater aquifers, rivers, streams, lakes, ponds and wetlands. LINK

It takes three to five barrels of water to produce one barrel of oil. LINK

For In Situ extraction alone, 24,000 m3 of water will be needed DAILY for steam production and processing. LINK

The Tar Sands are a mixture of sand, clay, and a very heavy crude oil called bitumen, which is tar-like and does not flow on its own. To get the oil out of the ground, trees are cut down, the surface layer is strip-mined, and the underlying mixture is heated with steam in order to make it flow.

Because the bitumen is very low quality, it is then processed and refined to turn it into synthetic crude oil which can be used as fuel. LINK

  Fort McMurray
 
Rare cancers and other ailments linked to the Alberta Tar Sands have been reported in Fort McMurray.

Greenpeace, also documents that the largest reserves of accessible tar sands are located in northern Alberta, Canada, amidst what has been pristine, untouched wilderness and under millions of hectares of boreal forest. The closest town is Fort McMurray, and there are a number of small communities located downstream from tar sands projects, where residents are already suffering from the effects of pollution caused by the tar sands. LINK

The Tar Sands Project requires process of extracting oil, is worse than conventional oil extraction, because it takes immense quantities of water, and huge amounts of dirty energy to create the steam needed to get oil out of tar sands, and processing the bitumen requires the use of even more dirty energy.

But exploiting the tar sands goes farther than simply using up water, electricity, coal and natural gas. The air is polluted with nitrogen oxides and sulphur dioxide, water is contaminated with toxic chemicals, as millions of hectares of wilderness are being destroyed. LINK

Tar Sands creating Cancer-causing Polluted Water

Tar sands operations require the use of vast quantities of water, which become contaminated and must be stored in huge tailing ponds. This both depletes local water reserves and threatens to pollute the environment and nearby communities. LINK

Toxic Tailings Ponds

 
 
Canada’s tar sands also known as oil sands, are found in the three areas of the province of Alberta. Largest area is the Athabasca oil sands, where an estimated 20 percent is near enough to the surface that it can be mined for tar like bitumen to turn into synthetic crude oil..

During the process of separating bitumen from the tar sands, large amounts of water are mixed in with the sand, and once the oil has been removed, the leftover mixture of water, sand, clay and residual bitumen – known as tailings – has to be stored in a stable location so that the solution can settle and separate. The storage facilities are known as tailings ponds. Because each cubic metre of bitumen extracted results in three to five cubic metres of tailings that need to be stored, the tailings ponds are so enormous that they can be seen by the naked eye from outer space.

Other “wastewater” is also stored in human-made holding lagoons such as sewage, water used for cooling, and water that has come into contact with coke, asphaltenes, sulphur, or heavy metals. This tactic is supposed to prevent the contamination of groundwater and river systems, but there is concern that this is not working properly. LINK

What is so toxic about these ponds?

In most mining operations, harsh chemicals are needed to separate the minerals from the sand or rock that they are embedded in. For example, in gold or copper mining, arsenic and cyanide are often used, so tailings in those operations are extremely poisonous. In the tar sands, naphtha and paraffin are used, but they are supposed to be separated from the water before it is pumped into the tailings pond.

However, the byproducts of the petroleum itself are dangerous and known to kill the microorganisms which would ordinarily be present in a river or natural wetlands. Scientists state that the most dangerous contaminant in tar sands tailings water is naphthenic acid, a natural constituent of petroleum that becomes dissolved and concentrated in the hot water used to process the tar sands.

Repeated exposure to naphthenic acid can have adverse health effects upon mammals, causing liver problems and brain haemorrhaging, and higher concentrations lead to more serious effects. Another component of the tailings is alkyl-substituted polyaromatic hydrocarbon, which causes deformities and even death to birds exposed to it.

Besides the toxic chemicals that are contained within the tailings, the water in these storage facilities attracts methanogenic bacteria, which produce methane, a greenhouse gas. The methane bubbles change the composition of the tailings pond and make some of the other dangerous toxins in the water more concentrated.

The oil companies’ response to these dangers is to fire airguns around the tailings ponds to prevent any birds and animals from coming near it. A more serious risk is that these ponds are leaking into the groundwater in the area, and into the Athabasca River. Another fear is that companies will stop operating in the area (if the oil runs out, or if profit margins go down), and stop maintaining the facilities. LINK

Water Pollution

Tar Sands is destroying Alberta's Ground Water

Naphthenic acids are persistent and hard to disperse from the environment. They are released in high concentrations from tar sands projects, so people who live downstream have serious fears about contaminated water, fish and wildlife. Mercury contamination is another risk, because when the wetlands which originally covered the tar sands are drained, high concentrations of mercury can be released into the surrounding water bodies.

Recently, people living in Fort Chipewyan (a First Nations community downstream from the tar sands projects) began to publicise their concerns about the effects of water pollution on their health. Since tar sands development has been accelerating over the past few years, they have noticed greater incidences of cancer and diseases like lupus and multiple sclerosis in their community. LINK

Tar sands and health

The main health concerns related to the tar sands are associated with air and water pollution. In addition to carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, tar sands operations also emit other substances into the atmosphere, most notably nitrogen oxide, sulphur oxide, particulate matter and volatile organic compounds.

Breathing in nitrogen oxide and sulphur oxide often leads to respiratory problems, and particulate matter has been linked to diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema and various forms of heart disease. Volatile organic compounds can cause even more serious problems, from cancer to brain damage.

The presence of toxic chemicals or heavy metals in lakes and rivers affects drinking water, as well as the health of animals and fish that drink from the water, or live in it. When human beings eat the animals or fish they are also eating the chemicals consumed by the animal. There have been reports of mutations in animals and fish in ecosystems downstream from tar sands projects, and people who live in the area are very concerned that increased health problems may be linked to contaminated food and water sources. LINK

Communities downstream from the tar sands are already experiencing cancer rates far higher than can be explained by change. These debilitating ailments include leukemia, lupus, lymphomas, autoimmune diseases, and rare forms of cancer have all increasing in recent years in the population that is for the most part made up of Athabasca Chipewyan and Mikisew Cree First Nations.

A high number of such illnesses have been diagnosed in Fort Chipewyan, a community of about 1,200 people living 300 kilometres north of Fort McMurray.

This could be an early sign of things to come for hundreds of thousands of Albertans, if the Alberta Tar Sands continues on its pace to take up an area larges than the American State of Florida.

The Tar Sands and the Boreal Forest

When we as Canadians cut down forests like the Boreal, we essentially destroy the ability of that area to act as a carbon sink. But not only do we suffer a loss of carbon absorption, we also release masses of stored carbon back into the atmosphere: a serious double-whammy. If that weren’t bad enough, clearing and burning rainforests releases great amounts of methane, ozone and nitrous oxide into the atmosphere as well.

4.3 million hectares of the Boreal Forest cover the tar sands, and these are being clearcut so that oil companies can access the tar underneath. The Boreal Forest has been referred to as the lungs of our planet, and tar sands operations threaten to destroy an area the size of Florida.

The Boreal Forest is a highly complex ecosystem that supports a vast array of plants and wildlife including grizzly bears, wolverine, woodland caribou and over a billion birds. It represents more than 25% of all ancient forests that is left on the planet and is a source of clean water for millions of Canadians. The Boreal Forest is home to hundreds of First Nations communities that depend on the forest for their sustenance, jobs and traditional activities. Many of the areas under development in the Boreal Forest are subject to land claims and disputes.

The Boreal Forest also has particular value as a storehouse of carbon, holding more than 47 billion tonnes in its trees and soils. When the forest is cut down and soils are disturbed by heavy machinery, carbon from this storehouse is released into the atmosphere, further exacerbating global warming.

Unfortunately unsustainable development, including the tar sands, is taking its toll on the Boreal Forest. For example, woodland caribou, a species threatened with extinction, have seriously declined in Alberta as a result of the loss of their habitat in the Boreal Forest. LINK

Tar sands and Social Costs

It is often argued that the social and economic benefits of tar sands activities outweigh the environmental harm they cause. This is clearly not the case in Alberta. The pace of tar sands development has exceeded the ability of anyone to deal with the social consequences.

Economically, Albertans are finding times tougher than ever. Inflation and consumer prices in Calgary and Edmonton are rising exponentially. Basic needs like housing are becoming unaffordable as demand outstrips supply. Services by skilled tradespeople (mechanics, plumbers, etc.) are expensive and hard to find because so many skilled workers are working on tar sands projects. Access to health care is becoming more and more difficult. Even traffic is getting worse — commute times are longer, accident rates are higher, and because most of the oil from the tar sands goes to the United States, even the price of gas is high.

People working in the tar sands are seeing “fat paycheques“, but there are enormous corresponding downsides: long hours, abusive situations, bad accommodation, remote locations, and a lack of job security are common complaints. Worker safety is another problem as drilling rigs and mine sites are some of the most dangerous work environments, and Alberta’s industrial accident rate increased by 17% between 2004 and 2006.

These are not the kind of details that neither Mr. Harper nor his confederates presents to Canadians, when he labels the Alberta Tar Sands as leadings Albertans to “prosperity“.

Many communities in Alberta feel they are being destroyed by the economic changes. Substance abuse, gambling and family violence has increased in towns near tar sands projects, and as thousands of workers are brought in by oil companies, towns in Northern Alberta face housing crunches and much higher costs. Homelessness in Edmonton increased by 19% in 2006 as there is not enough infrastructure or social services in Alberta to accommodate the increased population.

Fort McMurray Medical Examiner Dr. John O’Connor says he’d like some answers before more developments are approved. O’Connor says he is diagnosing unusually high numbers of immune system diseases affecting the thyroid and less serious ones such as rhumatoid arthritis and skin rashes.

He has also treated five people in the community who died recently from a rare, almost always fatal cancer that should occur once in every 100,000 people.

“With my increasing lack of ability to explain why I’m seeing such numbers, it worries me and it does call for a health study to be initiated as soon as possible,” says O’Connor.

However the apparent non-biological artificial intelligences that have inspired the virtual reality fantasy of “prosperity” associated with the Tar Sands, are not interested in protecting the quality-of-life of Canadians, who are being callously destined to be exposed to a larger than the State of Florida size wasteland many thousands of times the size of the Love Canal.

Gnostic-inspired reflections

Gnostics suggest that humans must liberate themselves as a species, toward embracing a substantive reality that is inextricably associated with the custodianship of Earth’s biosphere. Gnostic correspondingly suggest that humanity must liberate themselves from the mutually reinforcing virtual reality conventions that are prevalent and from scenarios in society from organized religion, and from prisms of virtual reality inspired capitalist economic development. Gnostics warn that based upon their critical insights of these alien intelligences, that a failure to do so, would result in a prospective future in which humanity could eventually wake itself too late, from an operating substantive reality of complete enslavement and self-destruction under conquering manipulative aliens.

Gnostic insights therefore, suggests that the Alberta Tar Sands do not merely expose a conflict between “the goals of an environmental movement”, and the “necessary courses of action to maintain a prosperous economic future”. Rather, Gnostic insights suggest that the Alberta Tar Sands exposes a cosmological conflict between apparent alien mechanical consciousnesses — that have taken over our Global Economic framework through the trickery of computer generated simulated reality — and the awakening of the organic consciousness of humanity.

While humanity has been awakening to its vital cosmological and existential association with Earth’s biosphere, the apparent alien guided and greed-driven human spokespersons for artificial intelligences have continued to try to trick humanity into accepting the greater alleged importance of a virtual reality prism of “prosperity“.

The primary beneficiaries of the apparent virtual reality ruse of the Global Economy, seek to perpetuate the repression of human knowledge of alien consciousness, to deny humanity from being aware of a lower-dimensional consciousness that is hostile to human free will and sovereignty.

The elite beneficiaries that consort with Gnostic identified manipulative alien consciousness, seek to continue to use a generated “fantasy reality” that is generated by a matrix of alien-guided virtual reality inspired financial-centred decision-making.

Gnostics suggest that human elites who want to perpetuate their artificially contrived and perpetuated dominance based upon money as “Three Dimensional video game points“, rely on working for alien consciousnesses that in collusion with each other, seek to retard and deny a human spiritual awakening.

Gnostics identified organized religion as expressed through Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as a vector to introduce a virtual reality substitution of a critical spirituality of empathy, peace, and wisdom associated with a real cosmic God, with the promotion of an “impostor God”.

John Lash specifically refers to these Abrahamic organized religion as instigating a template in the human mind, that operates like a highly advanced piece of computer software. Under the spell of this template, humans have continued to disregard the psychosis of activities that threaten their survival as poignantly symbolized by the Alberta Tar Sands.

Gnostics suggest that humanity is being mis-directed into favouring the chasing of “fantasy wealth”, and sterile “fantasy lifestyles” in relation to the Global Economy, and also toward the goals of achieving in am after-life in a “fantasy heaven“.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper along with his confederates in the House of Commons, and Big Business interests (further backed by U.S. President George W. Bush) that present the Alberta Tar Sands as leading Canadians to a “pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, is promoting an apparent “archon fantasy”.

John Lash in metahistory.org and his cited book, correspondingly explores the Gnostic appreciation of the extent to which humans are being motivated by these same nexus of leaders to accept conventions of “sin“, and “blind faith”, and to value dogma, under human elites acting as the agents of sophisticated artificial intelligences.

Christians like Prime Minister Stephen Harper and U.S. President George Bush supposedly follows a religion alleging that their “God” created the Earth, the Heavens and the Universe, that is the same consciousness that we are being led to believe thinks it is okay to now destroy this action of Creation, through the Tar Sands and other such initiatives?

But the Christian answer to reconcile these apparent incongruences is “blind faith”, that is designed to convince human followers of the “doctrine of the aliens” to put their “faith” in the same Gnostic represented worshipers of manipulative aliens, or risk not being saved by “God”, which is really according to the Gnostics, and artificial contrived creation of Demons.

The prevailing modern Global Economy has been apparent a creation of the mechanical consciousness that infected humanity through a social psychological virus, operating in a Three-Dimensional quasi-video simulation context in their mind, where humanity has replaced a fantasy of prosperity, with the reality of their impoverishment.

The Gnostics did not have video games a thousands of years ago, but were able to use their critical intellectual capabilities to appreciate the attempt by a sophisticated artificial intelligence to attempt to assimilate the human mind, into artificial simulations designed to control and exploit humanity.

The Gnostics referred to the attempt by lower-dimensional but technologically disciplined mechanical consciousness to get humanity into accepting the alleged prosperity of the Alberta Tar Sands, and other such quality-of-living threats, as an “alien intrusion”.

Humanity can re-affirm its own quality-of-survival by rejecting the virtual reality conventions of the prevailing Global Economy, while adopting a rejuvenating economic framework, which is inspired by our organic rather than alien mechanical consciousness of artificial intelligences.

Such a new organic-inspired Global Economy would reject the madness represented by such quality-of-survival destroying initiatives like the Alberta Tar Sands, in favour of, for example, the mass production of fully developed electric cars, wind energy, and all the other kinds of environmentally sensitized technologies. These are the kinds of higher-consciousness-guided technologies that the operating artificially guided intelligences have sought to repress outright, or have sought to convince us through manipulated virtual reality simulations that, as a “modern economy” we cannot possibly work toward maintaining continued “prosperity”.

The human minions of artificial intelligence use computer generated economic simulations of alleged job losses, and other such data, to fool humanity into accepting the dystopia of the need to pursue the Tar Sands project.

Quality of Living

Quality of Living by Horace Carby-Samuels.
 

The books entitled the Quality-of-Living and Human Development as the Outcome from Economic Progress: An Elaboration on Living, as Time-Use Management by Horace Carby-Samuels, and Quantuum Economics: Wage Slavery or the Quality of Life? Choices in the New Economy, also co-authored by retired Professor Carby-Samuels, provides an alternative context for the development of a ‘Real Economy‘, in contrast with the prevailing “Virtual Reality-inspired Economy” Such a ‘Real Economy’ would inherently integrate the collective quality-of-survival features of humanity, without prejudice. In such a ’Real Economy’, virtual reality scenarios that include former U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s popularized “trickle-down economics”, would be replaced by an economic decision-making context that would work toward eradicating domestic and global poverty, alongside the goal of unswerving protection of Earth’s biosphere as vital and axiomatic.

This is the kind of economy that is captured in the imagination of assassinated U.S. civic leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy and also of a whole generation during the late 1960’s, which based upon insights presented by John Lash, artificial intelligences through apparent human operatives had the potential and motive to repress and thwart. It appears that the kinds of artificial intelligences identified by Gnostics have been responsible for undermining the course of human evolution into a higher consciousness represented in part, by Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King Jr., and that was done through a mis-direction to support for the kinds of leadership which produces destructive initiatives like the Alberta Tar Sands.

Love Canal had yet to become a household name in 1978, the year that Lois Gibbs, a twenty-seven-year-old homemaker, discovered that her son’s elementary school had been built atop a 20,000-ton toxic-chemical dump in Niagara Falls, New York. Gathering her courage, she knocked on doors throughout her neighborhood, sharing information and concerns with other residents. After a two-year struggle, the Love Canal Homeowners Association Gibbs founded succeeded in persuading the federal government to relocate 833 families from the area, signaling the first major victory in a grassroots environmental movement that would launch the federal Superfund program for the cleanup of hazardous waste sites.

Did Giant Reptiles Share the Earth with Giant Humans?

The notion that early humans might have been contemporaneous with the giant reptiles has stoked the creative fires of many a fantasy and science fiction novelist. In Worlds Before Our Own (Anomalist Books, 2007), I pose a two-pronged question: Did a race of early humans exist during the Age of Reptiles, something like 70 million years ago; or did a certain number of the giant reptiles survive until a few thousand years ago?

Early in January, 1970, the London Express Service carried an item relating the discovery of a set of cave paintings which had been found in the Gorozamzi Hills, twenty-five miles from Salisbury in Rhodesia. According to the news story, the paintings included an accurate representation of a brontosaurus, the 67-foot, 30-ton behemoth that scientists insist became extinct millions of years before man achieved his earthly advent.

Experts agree that the paintings were done by bushmen who ruled Rhodesia from about 1500 B.C.E. until a few hundred years ago. The experts also agree that the bushmen only painted from life. This belief is borne out by the other Gorozamzi Hills cave paintings, which represent elephants, hippos, deer, and giraffe.

The November, 1968, issue of Science Digest carried the startling thoughts of Mexican archaeologist-journalist Jose Diaz-Bolio concerning his discovery of an ancient Mayan relief sculpture of a peculiar serpent-bird found in the ruins of Tajin, located in Totonacapan in the northeastern section of Veracruz, Mexico. Diaz- Bolio suggested that the serpent-bird was not merely the product of Mayan flights of fancy, but a realistic representation of an animal that lived during the period of the ancient Mayans — 1,000 to 5,000 years ago.

A startling evolutionary oddity would have been manifested if such serpent-birds were contemporary with the ancient Mayan culture, for creatures with such characteristics are believed to have disappeared 130 million years ago. The archaeornis and archaeopteryx, to which the sculpture bears a resemblance, were flying reptiles that became extinct during the Mesozoic age.

William Meister, an amateur rockhound, found what appears to be a fossilized human sandal print with a trilobite, an extinct marine animal, imbedded in the impression made by the heel. Meister discovered the print in July, 1968, while searching for fossils at Antelope Springs, near Delta, Utah. Since the impression was made on what once may have been a sandy beach of the Cambrian period of the Paelozoic Era, the sandal print would have to be an incredible 500 million years old.

Dr. Clifford Burdick personally investigated William Meister’s find, and while digging in the same area where the rockhound had found the remarkable sandal print, he himself found a human track similar to the first one Meister discovered, evidently made by shoes or moccasins. Professors of the geological department of a leading university conceded that the tracks definitely looked human, but they could not accept their biological origins.

Dr. Burdick commented that the manlike tracks found at Antelope Springs, preserved in rock hundreds of feet below the present surface of the ground, may have been covered at or near the beginning of some great catastrophic, earth-shaking event that buried many forms of life all together, some marine and some non-marine.

“If these are verified as human tracks,” he said, “the discovery will have far-reaching repercussions throughout the scientific world, and especially for stratigraphers and palaeontologists. Cambrian fossils such as trilobites, are placed at the bottom of the Palaeozoic, some estimated 600 million years before man evolved, according to evolutionary geology. This evidence, if verified, will practically collapse the geologic column.”

In addition to the giant footprints of manlike bipedal creatures discovered throughout the southwestern United States, other indications that a much larger race inhabited North America in prehistoric times came with the discovery in Supai Canyon, Arizona, of a petroglyph depicting a mammoth attacking a man. This primitive work of art was found by Harold T. Wilkins, who determined that the beleaguered man must have been over ten feet tall, according to the perspective employed by the ancient artist. Amerindians in the vicinity stated that the drawings had been made by the “giants of long ago.”

The New York Times on December 2, 1930, carried an item that told of the discovery of the remains of an apparent race of giants who once lived at Sayopa, Sonora, a mining town 300 miles south of the Mexican border. A mining engineer, J. E. Coker, said that labourers clearing ranchland near the Yazui River “dug into an old cemetery where bodies of men, averaging eight feet in height, were found buried tier by tier. . . .”

On February 14, 1936″ The New York Times ran a piece datelined Managua, Nicaragua, which stated that the skeleton of a gigantic man, with the head missing, had been unearthed at El Boquin, on the Mico River, in the Chontales district. “The ribs are a yard long and four inches wide and the shin bone is too heavy for one man to carry. ‘Chontales’ is an Indian word, meaning ‘wild man.’

In its June 9, 1936 issue, The New York Times published an article item with a Miami, Florida dateline that told of human skeletons eight feet long imbedded in the sand of an uninhabited little island off Southern Florida. E. M. Miller, zoologist at the University of Miami, commented that the skulls were unusually thick, the jaws protruded, and the eye sockets were high in the head.

In his book emtitled Forbidden Land, Robert R. Lyman wrote of an unknown tribe of American giants who had the added distinction of having horns growing from their heads:

“At Tioga Point … a short distance from Sayre, in Bradford County (Pennsylvania]… they uncovered an Indian mound [and] found the bones of 68 men which were believed to have been buried about the year 1200. The average height of these men was seven feet, while many were much taller. On some of the skulls, two inches above the perfectly formed forehead, were protuberances of bone, evidently horns that had been there since birth. Some of the specimens were sent to the American Investigating Museum.

“. . . In December 1886, W. H. Scoville of Andrews Settlement discovered an Indian mound at Ellisburg. When opened, the skeleton of a man was found. It was close to eight feet in length.”

According to their oral tradition, the Delaware tribe once lived in the western United States. At some point in their history, they migrated eastward as far as the Mississippi River, where they were joined by the Iroquois Confederacy. Both groups of people were seeking land better suited to their rather cultured way of life, and they continued together on their eastward trek.

Scouts sent ahead learned of a nation that inhabited the land east of the Mississippi and who had built strong, walled cities. These people were known as the Talligewi or Allegewi, after whom the Allegheny River and Mountains are named. The Allegewi were considered taller than either the Iroquois or the Delaware, and the scouts saw a good many giants walking among them.

When the two migrating tribes asked permission to pass through the land of the Allegewi, it was denied. Bitter fighting broke out, which continued for a number of years. EventualIy, the superior numbers and the determination of the allies prevailed, and the Allegewi fled to the west.

The Allegewi next appear in the legends of the Sioux, whose tradition tells of a confrontation with a race of great stature. The Sioux, who were surely among the ablest of warriors, exterminated the Allegewi when the giants sought to settle in what is now Minnesota.

Is there any archaeological evidence to support these tribal legends and traditions?

Rising out of the earth in Ohio, Minnesota, Iowa, and other states are the huge Earthworks of the mysterious “moundbuilders.” The mounds scattered throughout the Midwest were apparently raised by the same unknown people, and the earthworks are extremely large.

Do giant mounds indicate giant people?

Enormous weapons, including a copper ax weighing 38 pounds, have been found in these mounds. It is difficult to imagine the average-sized Amerindian, as we first know him at the time of the European invasion, casually wielding a 38-pound axe.

However, outsized weapons and implements alone are not proof of a giant race, and neither are huge monuments. The former can be works of art, the latter could be objects of religious commitment. The best proof of a race of giants in North America– or anywhere else — would be the discovery of the skeletons of these people.

Two brothers living in Dresbach, Minnesota, in the process of enlarging their brick business, were forced to remove a number of large Indian mounds. In one of the huge earthenworks they discovered the bones of “men over eight feet tall.”

In La Crescent, Minnesota, not far from Dresbach, mound-diggers reportedly found large skillets and “bones of men of huge stature.”

Over in Chatfield, mounds were excavated, revealing six skeletons of enormous size.

Unusually large skeletons of seven people buried head down were discovered in Clearwater. The skulls in the latter find were said to have had receding foreheads, and teeth that were double all the way around.

Other discoveries in Minnesota included “men of more than ordinary size” in Moose Island Lake; several skeletons, one of “gigantic size” in Pine City; ten skeletons “of both sexes and of gigantic size” in Warren (buried with these particular specimens were horses, badgers, and dogs).

Could these huge skeletons of gigantic “indians” be all that remains of the last of a proud prehistoric race who defied the monster reptiles and built an extensive empire of walled cities throughout the Americas?

Dr. Clifford Burdick first began investigating “footprints in stone” in the early 1950s when the Natural Science Foundation of Los Angeles assigned him to go with four other members to examine the reported man-tracks found in strata contemporaneous with dinosaur prints in and around Glen Rose, Texas. The committee soon learned that men had been cutting dinosaur and human tracks out of the limestone of the Paluxy River bed near Glen Rose since at least 1938. A Mr. A. Berry gave them an affidavit which stated that in September of that year, he and other men found “many dinosaur tracks, several sabre-tooth tiger tracks, and three human tracks” in the river bed.

Dr. Burdick learned that Dr. Roland Bird, field explorer for the American Museum of Natural History of New York City, had also examined the Berry tracks. Describing them in the May 1939 edition of Natural History magazine, Bird admitted that he had never seen anything like the tracks, and assessed them as “perfect in every detail.” But since the man-like tracks measured 16 inches from toe to heel, Bird declared that they were too large to be human, although the barefoot tracks did show all the toes, insteps, and heels in the proper proportions. When Dr. Bird made a special field trip to the Paluxy River to examine the tracks in situ, he became less enthusiastic about the prints in association with dinosaur tracks, because “man did not live in the age of dinosaurs.”

Whatever species of creature made these tracks, it was definitely bipedal. The footprints all have about the same length of stride, which would be consistent with a man with a 16-inch foot. The shapes of the prints are more manlike than any other animal known to science.

If the tracks are accepted as being human, then scientists will be forced either to place man back in time to the Cretaceous period or to bring the dinosaur forward to the Pleistocene or Recent period.

In referring to the evidence of the Glen Rose tracks, Dr. Burdick states that the generally accepted theory of evolution would be dealt a lethal blow, because the geologic record of human footprints contemporaneous with dinosaur tracks “suggests that simple and complex types of life were coexistent in time past or during geologic ages. . . . This does not harmonize with the hypothesis that complex types of life evolved from lower or more simple forms. Evolution implies that through the geologic ages life has not only become more complex, but has increased in size. If evidence from the man-tracks can be used as a criterion, ancient man was much larger than modern man as an average. This harmonized with most fossil life which was larger than its modern counterpart. . . . On the whole, biological life has had to contend with unfavorable environment which has been a factor in its degeneration, rather than its evolution.”

  Fossil Footprints
 
Fossilized footprints such as this–which certainly appear to be human–have been found throughout the American Southwest, most often in geologic strata indicative of 250 million years old. Dr. Wilbur Greely Burroughs, Geology Department, Berea College, KY, studied a series of such humanlike tracks impressed upon a sandy beach in the Pennsylvanian Period of the Palaeozoic Era, around 250 million years ago. Burroughs named the unknown originator of the mysterious tracks Phenanthropus mirabilis (“looks human“; remarkable).

For years, Frank X. Tolbert wrote about the alleged mantracks in the Paluxy River in his “Tolbert’s Texas” column in the Dallas Morning News. Consistently skeptical that the prints were made by humans, Tolbert maintained that the tracks had been made by giant sloths. But in his January 6, 1973 column, Tolbert reported “what may be the clearest of the so-called ‘giant men tracks’ yet discovered”– a footprint of “a huge humanoid” measuring 21 1/2 inches in length, 8 inches in width across the front of the foot, and 5 1/2 inches across the instep.

Dr. C. N. Dougherty of Glen Rose stated that near the footprint are also the deeply engraved prints of three-toed dinosaurs. “These men-tracks belong to the Mesozoic Era because the clearest man-track is exactly eight inches from a trachodon track and on the same layer of rock,” said Dr. Dougherty. “The trachodon tracks are as clear and distinct as the man-track. ”

According to Dr. Dougherty: “When I discovered this trail of a giant man under the waterfall, I had a feeling that it was one of the most important discoveries since the Dead Sea Scrolls.”

The thing that most intrigued Tolbert is that the prints are each 21 1/2 inches in length, “And they indicate that these men who were contemporaries of the brontosaurus, if men they were, walked with a stride of seven feet.”

Some might conjecture that such giant humans might have been able to band together and put up a pretty good fight against any giant reptile.
